Closed Beta Testing mainly focuses on below two core functions:

1. The HPB currently adopts Prometheus consensus algorithm. With fixed trusted node, the basic framework of high TPS consensus algorithm is established through voting, statistics, and calculation. Closed Beta Testing will stress test the stability of the consensus algorithm and the Fork recovery mechanism.

2. To tackle the network bandwidth bottleneck in high TPS scenario, HPB optimizes the P2P network topology so that it can meet the actual future needs.


Based on the test results, HPB team will immediately enter the next phase of R&D, including:

·      Consensus algorithm optimization.

·      BOE hardware acceleration engine logic design and verification.

·      Hardware board production.

·      Heterogeneous computing system design.

·      Network concurrency and protocol optimization.

·      High TPS scenario parameters adjustment.
